Blog Listed on DMOZ and Google Directory
Getting a link from authority websites is powerful in SEO because links from such websites are given more weight by search engines. This will give a boost to the website that they are linking to and help in improving SERPs and increasing its pagerank. Nowadays, backlinks from link directories are already discounted and given less weight. However, authority link directories still provide the link juice that is needed for search engine optimization. Some of the most reputed link directories on the web are DMOZ Open Project, Google Directory and Yahoo! Directory.
Because of the impact that the said authority link directories can bring in optimizing websites, many webmasters and SEO specialists try to get listed on them.

Directory editors follow strict website submission and quality standards and guidelines to maintain their reliability and good reputation.
